Every Saturday morning, local vendors bring their wares to the Kandahar Air Field (KAF) to sell to the KAF residents. While setting up their stalls (starting as early as 5:30 am), the sons and nephews who will help them hawk their goods attend the KAF Bazaar School. The school started about 18 months ago, and has now become a formal program including recreation activities run by KAF volunteers (soldiers and civilians) and formal lessons with an Afghan teacher. Photos below show some typical activities as well as a few scenes from the very lively and noisy bazaar, where haggling is expected.
